It would seem that all the data we lost has 'magically' come back - check pages 2, 3, etc of the forum - it's all there! I've no idea how this has happened.

(I will sort out the duplicate stickies later)

It's great to have all our content back, but I've experienced a few errors too:

<LI> The same kind of errors we were all getting last week before the crash (e.g. "invalid value for 'm'" and "page unavailable")

<LI> The resurrected threads have posts containing two signatures - a pre-crash sig and a post-crash sig! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/354.gif

<LI> My post count hasn't reverted to its pre-crash number either. I assume this is the same for everyone else? Not that it's important, but if it's symptomatic of database problems, then I'd like to let Ubi know.

If you get errors when trying to use the forum, please post them here (when the forum lets you...)

Thanks.

That's fantastic news http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_cool.gif http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

What is the best thing to do regarding the double sig? Considering it now breaks the sig rules.

Also, it would be interesting to know how they managed to get them back.

I'll have to ask AK about that. I don't think his new rules anticipated such strangeness!

For now, we'll have to ignore the double sigs in pre-crash resurrected threads, as there's no way of me or you fixing it...

I 've just been trying to see the last pages of the collecting questions for the SHIV Devs sticky that has come back and it's a no go, just comes up blank with no invalid value of m rubbish at all. Definitely still not right somewhere.

I agree, pages 4, 5 and 6 of that thread just come up blank, so don't be too quick to trash my redux, VG!

This is why I didn't want to rush into deleting the duplicated stickies... We need to be sure that we won't lose any of the new content added since the forums came back online.

As best I can tell the reborn Daily Answers thread is complete so you can unsticky my redux of that though.

Yep, the original sticky thread looks pretty screwed up. I'll contact AK to ask what he wants to do about this, as I can't unsticky his thread until I've checked with him first.
